Additional Comments

Game is known as quite buggy also on windows, I've encountered two or three infamous bugs:

  • White screen at start, that is probably due to full-screen, easily fixable two ways:
    1. setting game to run in window-mode and use kwin rules to get borderless windows.
    2. removing file "DisplaySettings.xml" in "data" directory under sleeping dogs installation folder every time before start game, keep in mind that this is equal to reset custom graphics settings to default, so if you use custom settings you need to set every time you start game.
  • Sometimes game freezes while loading game or level, in this case it's enough restart game (retrying more times if necessary) until it works.
  • Sometimes game crash/hang with "unhanded page fault" (wine no log any error/fixme/warning before it), but I been able to play +2h without it (trying modify nvidia-setting and environment variables, but I do not know what exactly avoid crash, provided is not a case).

Game works ONLY in staging version, with standard wine the game does not start at all, and CSMT needs be enabled, otherwise texture artifacts appear in game.

I get 58/60fps stable installing DXVK from AUR (see arch wiki). In this case full-screen do not work at all, so you need to edit (or create, getting it from the web) "DisplaySettings.xml" file, modify fullscreen value from 1 to 0.
